Gracing yet another prestigious list Deepika Padukone is the only Indian actress who tops it and for spreading mental health awareness she has won the 26th Annual Crystal Award. An internationally acclaimed actor, fashion icon and mental health ambassador, Deepika Padukone stands tall in this list.
Talking about the importance of mental health awareness Deepika Padukone shares, "With more than 300 million people suffering from the illness, depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability in the world today and a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease. It is therefore increasingly clear that now more than ever before, we need to aggressively address what is an invisible and overlooked health and social burden. I am humbled and deeply honoured to be chosen for this year's Crystal Award and dedicate the award to the millions around the world who experience stress, anxiety and depression, and other forms of mental illness,”.
